Faith-Based Group Wants Proactive Posture In Ebola Fight

By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, October 9 (LINA) - The Regional Director of Young Life International (YLI), James S. Davis, is urging government to maintain a proactive posture by providing early medication and food supplies to people suspected of contracting the Ebola disease.

YLI is a faith-based organization with headquarters in the U.S which  has been operating in Liberia for over 11 years, providing youths with social training to boost their skills and leadership abilities so that they can positively impact society.

Davis made the appeal in an interview with the Liberia News Agency, in Mount Barclay, Johnsonville Township, on Wednesday.

He said YLI recently offered aid to 31 residents of the hard-hit community of Mount Barclay, who later walked out of quarantine centers, while a similar package was distributed in Gweelor in Johnsonville Township where 76 residents suspected of the disease were given early medication and are now reintegrated into their communities.

He said the assistance comprised food supplements, rehydration salts, anti-malaria drugs and diarrhea antibiotics.

 “These residents were given several antibiotics and rehydration solution. We also advised them to eat nourishing food and drink enough water, and have sufficient rest; by doing this the immune system will develop and will make the body stronger to resist the virus,” Davis noted.
